A Baby Tooth and the Egyptian God of Knowledge - S3-E20

Factual error: Georgie removes his stash of cash from the air vent in his bedroom (envelope with a photo of a mustang taped to it) and the cash ($20 bills) have a serial # starting with the letter "C" which is a series of bills that were not printed until 2001. (00:15:14)

A Solar Calculator, a Game Ball, and a Cheerleader's Bosom - S1-E5

Factual error: The commentary suggests that Sheldon had the correct solution to problem 1 and merely lost points on the quiz because he didn't show his work. In reality he did the first problem incorrectly. Taking the derivative of (x+2) ^2+ (y+1) ^2 = 13 with respect to x yields: 2* (x+2) +2* (y+1) * (dy/dx) = 0 which implies that: dy/dx = - (x+2) / (y+1) and at the point (0,2) this means that the slope dy/dx is actually equal to - (2/3), not 2/3. It is correct that when using the form y=mx+b at the point 0,2 reveals that 2=m*0+b, or that b=2. So the correct equation for the tangent line is y = - (2/3) x + 2, not y = (2/3) x + 2 as shown in the episode. (00:13:55)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Sheldon is putting his mittens on at the table he his seen putting the first one on and the second one is on the table, the shot changes and the mitten is no longer on the table. He raises his hands and both hands have mittens on them. (00:01:55)

Jiu-Jitsu, Bubble Wrap, and Yoo-Hoo - S1-E17

Plot hole: Near the start we see Sheldon using physics to try and take down Tam. This completely goes against all of Sheldon's phobias about touching people, especially socks. Even before this episode he has shown his displeasure at the thought of touching people. (00:05:00)

Poker, Faith and Eggs - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Sheldon and Missy are sitting at the table, Missy puts a paper in the basket in front of her. A couple of shots later when she says "sounds right" the paper has disappeared. In the next shot it reappears, in a different position than it was before. (00:06:20)

Freshman Orientation and the Inventor of the Zipper - S4-E6

Plot hole: Memaw gets a call from Dr. Sturgis saying that he has moved to Waxahatchie and would she please call him back. He does not say the new phone number, and this was well before cell phones were in widespread use by the general public, so it could only be a land line. Memaw calls him back, although she could not know the number.

Suggested correction: Just watched the clip. Sturgis calls Mary, leaves a message. She calls him back; I'd guess his local number. He says "I've taken a job there", which is what you say when you're not at the place yet (otherwise you'd say here). Says he won't be there when Sheldon starts college.

Suggested correction: Memaw could have caller ID, or she could have called information.

Caller ID was first available in December 1988, and it's unlikely that Memaw would have it that early. The story takes place before that time. It is possible that she called information, but when did she do it?

Pilot - S1-E1

Georgie: Admit it, he's adopted.
Sheldon: How can I be adopted when I have a twin sister? Think, monkey, think.
Missy: I wish I was adopted.
Mary: That can still be arranged.

Jiu-Jitsu, Bubble Wrap, and Yoo-Hoo - S1-E17

Question: Why does the girl who keeps going after Sheldon go after him at all? She looks at him like she just hates his guts and would love to kill him, but why? I know that bullies go after the weaker people but she seems to act like Sheldon ruined her life or something.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Some people just have a dislike for someone that can't be explained. Could be as simple as the way he's dressed.
